The woman obviously needs her head examined. If this is what she considers "art", there is something seriously wrong with her.

The art exhibit is so controversial and so startling that, nine years since it debuted in Sweden and long after Ms. Kleivan sold the series to a private collector for approximately US$11,000, Potency is again garnering headlines.

She's obviously artistically and intellectually bankrupt. This is all she can muster? Degrading yourself by appealing to the cheap shock,shock,shock elements of the swastika and Hitler. This isn't art, it's cheap theatrics.

Well, I think the guy who bought the work for $11,000 can now sell it for a nice sum thanks to all of the publicity.

It'll be sad if this is the most famous moment in lil' Adolf Hitler's life.

Can you imagine growing up like that?

Mother: "Son, I found this in your room today." *holds up baggie with a gram or something*
Son: "Oh, well at least I don't dress up children like fascist dictators for profit."

Babies dressed up in animal suits are cute. Babies dressed up in this, and published, are scarred for life.

Mom, you should lose custody and get on anti-depressants. NOW.

All art is crazy. But we must remember what it is: just art. Someone's interpretation of something.

I think her point comes across. That we are all born essentially 'shapeless', with no limit to what we can become.

Lighten up people. Anything that exposes the likes of Hitler or Stalin to the eviscerating mockery they deserve should be supported. Even Mel Brooks figured this out when he made "The Producers".

So in the name of art, you can paint Swastika's on your kids too? In the name of art, I can punch you a black eye and take a picture of it?

Kids are sacred. What you do withyourself, whatever. But kids? Ah, no.

We're not born shapeless, with no limit to what we can become. Our physics (and her excuse, her disability) gives you limits, from the day you were born. In this baby's case, so does its mom.

Well, she didn't paint the swastikas on...

And yes, babies are simply beings that can become, morally, anything.

And if I agreed to it, you could punch me in the face for art.

Granted, the baby probably did not agree or never would have, but hey: this sparks the battle of what legal authority a parent has over their child

Which is exactly my point. This is imo going too far.
